ENID, Okla. — A meeting will be held at 3:30 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 4, 2019, to allow the public to ask questions about a multi-family housing project underway in the former Highland Park nursing home, 1410 W. Willow.
The city has scheduled the meeting in Enid City Commission chambers of the administration building, 401 W. Garriott, according to a news release.
The development, the Commons on Willow, is being proposed for 1410 W. Willow, the location of the former Highland Park Manor.
“The public is welcome but the meeting has been setup to specifically allow the residents of the Willow Run area a chance to hear from the developer and ask him questions,” the release states.
A legal notice was published in late 2017 regarding an application submission to the Oklahoma Housing Finance Agency for tax credits on the new construction of proposed affordable multi-family housing in Enid. The proposed development would include up to 60 units, with 40% of those units available to families that meet 50% of area median income and 60% of the units available to those at 60% AMI.
The developer of the project is Belmont Development Co. City officials anticipate Belmont representative William Fulmer will be at Wednesday’s meeting to discuss the multifamily housing project.
Highland Park Manor moved residents to a new facility, Garland Road Nursing and Rehabilitation Center, on Nov. 30, 2015.
